COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally developed for British sailors stationed in India, IPAs were aggressively hopped to help prevent spoilage on long ocean voyages. Now that spoilage isn’t as big a problem, we’ve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through. It’s a big beer with big flavor that really lets you appreciate hops in all their glory.

Bottle. Pours a deep gold color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is predominately of pine and hops, but a little hay and citrus is there too. The flavor, while fairly smooth, lacks just a bit of character. The finish is fairly good, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Don’t misunderstand--this is not a bad beer! It just has a lot of competition in the IPA market, so I’m being critical. I’d like to pair this brew with some fresh seafood and a mixed green salad.

12 oz bottle into tulip. Bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours a clear deep gold with a medium off-white lacy head with great retention. Aroma is cat piss, metal, sticky buns, grain. Taste is bittersweet and sour. Has a grainy aftertaste. Highly carbonated with a medium body. Very simplistic, but very drinkable. Really good for a Henry’s.

Honestly, I don’t smell much of anything. Odd. Has a nice, clear color between gold and copper, and a tiny white head. Mostly bitter taste, with just a hint of sweetness. The sweetness gets a bit stronger during the finish.

Pretty decent beer Poured a medium copper with decent head and lacin No exceptional aroma of the respected citrus But the mouthfeel and carbonation along with some nice hops made up for it Definitely Better than the Blue Boar or Privat Reserve Definitely will get again

12oz bottle - pours light caramel with plenty of off-white head and decent lacing. Nose is caramel, spruce and citrus. Flavor adds grass. Moderately bitter with some sweetness. Light to medium body. Easy to drink. Fairly boring for the style, but quite drinkable.

Dark honey in color. Slight sweet floral aroma. Clean tasting sweet toasty malt flavor with a nice faint citrus rind flavor. Overall, its a tasty brew but probably should be a pale ale as a result of the muted hops presence.

Aroma is of bitter hops. Taste is very bitter without a hoppy taste though. Taste more like a regular lager than IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My first Henry Weinard’s beer. This is a little different than the IPA’s than what i consider my faves, but i like the hoppiness. It makes me feel like im on a Pegasus.

Citrus, hoppy and bitter; a great combination. You can taste the carbonation. Clear orange pour with a light quickly receding head. Nice taste that lingers on the palette.
